Librivox recording of Trailin'! by Max Brand.
Read by Rowdy Delaney.

“Max Brand", the most used pseudonym of Frederick Schiller Faust (1892-1944), is best known today for his western fiction. Faust began in the early twentieth century selling his stories to the pulp magazines, writing in many genres under numerous pseudonyms. He is probably best known as the creator of the character Destry. His novel Destry Rides Again has been filmed several times, most notably the 1939 version starring James Stewart and Marlene Dietrich. Also his character Dr. Kildare which was popularized in film and on television earned him a fortune. Faust’s novel The Untamed, the first of three novels featuring the classic western hero Dan Barry was filmed in 1920, starring Tom Mix. Faust became a front line war correspondent and died of wounds received while traveling with American soldiers in Italy, May 12, 1944.

Trailin’ (1919) tells the story of Anthony Bard, a young aristocract from the east with a hunger for adventure, who sees his father murdered in the yard of their home. This starts young Anthony on a trail of vengeance that leads him to the far west. Here, Anthony, a tenderfoot with a knack for survival must track down a legendary outlaw who waits for him, not with a gun, but with a story. Along the way he braves the elements, resists a band of cold-blooded killers and finds love. A classic western revenge plot…..with a twist. (summary by Rowdy Delaney)

Subject: pretty decent western revenge tale, read well
Max Brand sometimes wrote detective stories, when he wasn't writing westerns. In this book, he combines the western with the murder mystery. You don't expect a western to open in NYC, at Madison Square Garden no less, but this one does. A few chapters later, a young man, well educated and otherwise citified, sees his father murdered in their New York home. He then sets out for the wild west in search of the cowboy whodunit. In a late plot twist that the average reader will see coming a mile away, the young man learns that all is not as he has thought. Meanwhile, his tenderfootin' ways make him multiple enemies, yet win the heart of a woman. As expected with Max Brand, the story is well told and the characters are interesting, if not overwhelmingly original. The reader did a good job, though at least twice slipping in the chapter introductions and calling the book "Trailin' by Zane Grey." Easy mistake to make. Can it be fixed? Please forgive my pointing it out. I really did enjoy the reader's pleasant voice and performance. Personally, I like Grey a lot better but Brand ain't bad.
